Hope the quality of buses is not as bad as cretia purple buses which didn't even had the power to overtake a rickshaw. We need renowned international manufacturer to provide buses instead of this new companies. Brand matters in such cases. Hopefully there is no scam in these and they recruit more buses instead of showpiece work as shivsena normally does.

MOTORISTS ON GREEN LANE GET MORE POWER

As the number of CNG-run and electric vehicles is increasing, Mumbai is creating green infrastructure to power motorists for a long and safe drive, besides wooing others to turn to environment-friendly transport options

Mumbai may soon get a bus terminal at Wadala

The Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) plans to start work on the long-pending inter-state bus terminal project at Wadala.

The planning authority has called for global tenders for the design and will also conduct techno-economic and financial feasibility study.

The aim of the project, initially planned in 2007, was to decongest city roads by bringing inter-state and inter-city buses operated by various state agencies under one roof. The plan was to build the terminal at Mankhurd. The MMRDA, however, now plans to execute it at Wadala.

A senior official from MMRDA said, “The bus terminal will be spread over 4.5 hectares and will handle city and state buses.”

It will built on parts of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST)’s Anik depot and the Wadala truck terminal.

The MMRDA, which has been appointed as the special planning authority for Wadala, plans to develop the area into a residential and commercial hub. Infrastructure projects such as the monorail, connectivity of the eastern freeway and upcoming Metro 4 (Wadala-Thane-Kasarvadavali) are already increasing the real-estate potential of the area.

The MMRDA consultant will also have to develop Wadala into a transport hub and build a casting yard for the Metro-4 line, officials said. The bids will be assessed early next year.

Bus terminal to come up at Wadala



Mumbai: Interstate bus terminal (ISBT) will come up at Wadala as the MMRDA has decided to appoint consultants to carry out a techno-feasibility study for the project.

In December 2005, the Maharashtra government had notified the MMRDA as the special planning authority to set up the ISBT as well as the Wadala Truck Terminal. An MMRDA official said, “The consultants are expected to conceptualize design, conduct technofeasibility study for the project. The scope of work for the consultants also includes management of the bidding process for the integrated transport hub.”

Maharashtra govt plans backwater tourism in Mumbai along Marve-Gorai coastline


In an ambitious plan to develop tourism in Mumbai, state education and guardian minister Vinod Tawde said the Maharashtra government intends to develop the Marve-Manori-Gorai coastline along the lines of the backwaters of Kerala.

Tawde made the announcement at the foundation-laying ceremony for the construction of a jetty at Marve for the Roll-on Roll-off (Ro-Ro) ferry services between Marve and Manori.

The Marve-Manori Ro-Ro service is expected to reduce the travelling time between the places along the routes drastically. “The 37-km distance, which has to normally be covered by road, takes over an hour. Once the ferry service is initiated, people cab travel to and from the places within 10 minutes,” said Atul Patne, CEO, Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB).

The MMB is planning Ro-Ro service on four routes in the city— Borivli-Gorai, Bhayander-Vasai, Versova and Naringi in Virar to Kharwadashri-Tembhi Kodave in Palghar.

According to Patne, the MMB plans to start the service by May 2018, but it still needs a go-ahead from the Bombay high court (HC). Any construction within 50 metres of mangroves requires permission from court.

“We have received other permissions on the Manori-end. We still need the permission from the HC,” he said.

Meanwhile, Tawde added that a new tourist spot for Mumbaiites and tourists would also help in generating jobs for the locals in the area.

“Once dredging is done along the Manori-Gorai-Marve coast to remove the mud, it will benefit locals. The travel time between these areas will reduce considerably by the use of water transport. A new tourist spot in the area will also provide employment,” Tawde said.

Mumbaikars can soon use one card for any mode of transport

The first step towards a single travel card for all modes of transport, starting with the lifeline, — the local trains of Mumbai — has been taken. In the first phase, railways will issue smart cards, which can operate in local trains and BEST buses, to at least 49 lakh season pass holders in the city. Around 75 lakh commuters use the Mumbai suburban system daily.

This is the second attempt of the government to provide single smart cards for all modes of transport; it was first conceived in 2006 and implemented in 2007 as 'Go Mumbai' card. But the scheme was scrapped in 2010.

At a November 14 meeting to discuss the modalities of the project, with the World Bank sought the details of the Integrated Transport System from the Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC). "We are also having a series of meeting with the Railway Board as well. If they approve it, we shall call for tenders within two months," said an MRVC official, on condition of anonymity.

The series of meetings are important for the approval of the new form of ticketing that will cover all modes of public transport catering to over 1.25 crore Mumbaikars everyday. These are the people who use local trains, BEST buses, Metro and Monorails and mobile aggregator taxis. Those travelling by suburban trains will be the first to adapt to this new system.

On August 2, DNA had reported about the plan. Senior railway officials said that they were looking at linking these Smart Cards with Aadhar card so that all details of the person using it were in place. This will also link these Smart Cards to bank accounts via Aadhar.

"We are thinking of levying a refundable security deposit of Rs 50 against each card. There will not be any charge for the card," said another official.

At the same time, authorities also intend to target 10 lakh commuters who form around 15 per cent of the total lot who buy daily tickets. Initially, the ticket checking staff – close to 700 TCs on both Western and Central Railways – will be given hand-held devices to check the validity of smart cards. The checking system will be the same, but unlike checking physical printed season pass now, they will check the validity on the device.

If a user wants to use the same card on routes that are not part of the Season passes, then more money needs to be added to the card. This way, not only can a commuter use it to travel on other routes on the suburban system but also use it on Metro rail and BEST buses. At present, there are ATVM smart cards that people use to get a physical copy of railway ticket from machines, while bus conductors inside BEST tap the smart card to check the balance available inside it. On the Metro rail, a passenger is allowed to travel on negative balance the first time, but before starting the next journey, money needs to be added into the card.

Meanwhile, in the second phase, card-tapping devices shall be placed at the stations, which will taken almost 8-10 years for it to come. Gradually by then, they will also want daily users to switch over to this Integrated Transport System. "Around the same time, we will begin gating the entrance and exit points at stations," said the official.

This system will be such that people need to tap on the card reading machine at the entrance and move forward. The entry and exit points will be bifurcated for each platform. When a commuter enters the station premises, he simply needs to tap the Smart Card. The gate shall remain open all the while and shall close only if there is insufficient balance in the card or has been wrongly swiped. The railways wants to ensure that every gate that leads to the platform is thoroughly covered and there is single entry and exit points that will be used.
